    Ok guys

    This is the secret...

    1) make the shot
    2) make a jpg image from lightroom or whatever
    3) make a new empty file of the same size in photoshop
    4) copy and paste your image in the new file and save....

    ALL THE EXIF INFO WILL BE GONE

    One example, GPS tagged photos.

    People have taken iphone shots and posted them up not knowing that it tagged their location, with a map/ directions link.

    Another might be to lie about your settings.

    I occasionally strip the exif. Not often though.

    The only reason I ever do is because my name is in it. On photo forums, I don't really care if people know my name, there are other places I would rather not have it visible though.

    Let say that personally I think the exif info are really usefull.... but sometimes you may have the need, who know.
    People is strange! :)

    Another point is... be carefull with copy and paste.... can have the risk to delete or to modify the exif
